Spreadsheet!! Pah Tongue They're about as much use to me as a chocolate fireplace.
My version is written on a postcard - although I need to rewrite it as its looking a bit tatty.(Tatties = Roots on Monday)

Failed on Day 1!
Workmen here this most of the day fitting new garage doors so couldn't head off to the end of the garden to plant shallots + its been too wet and windy.
I have a sprouting onion (one that I prepared earlier - a couple of months earlier) to eat tonight.
Fruits day tomorrow - will sow some broad beans and pick tomatoes.

Some people spend Christmas opening presents and making merry - - not me. I'm making plans for the new RSFLF Challenge of 2022 which starts, officially, on 1st January..........but I'm having a practice run this week.
On Sundays, I'll fill all the containers with compost (a bucket for Roots on Monday), and 5 tetrapacks (one side removed) to sow quick turn round veg (radish, sprouting onions, pea shoots, salad leaves etc - that can spend all their life in the same tetrapak); Tuesday's shoots, Wednesday's fruits and Thursday's leaves will be in modules. Flowers in Modules/pots.
Also, I'll find the seeds to sow that week and write labels!
Preparation is key to success. Big Grin

Remind of this next week please. Wink

Best of luck. You might very well succeed with the mild temperatures we're having.

Day 1 sowing complete!!..........Its a start. Smile
I'd hoped to dig up some Oca and Chinese Artichokes to eat a Root today but its too wet to go rootling in the mud. Maybe next Monday?
